Energy Control Arm Bushings

Are the energy control arm bushings worth it seen some people have bad luck installing them and not installing properly. Are they worth it or should I just buy moog?

The Dodge control arms are not a good place to use urethane bushings. The bushing design requires a lot of movement for the control arms to cycle properly throughout their range of motion. The urethane is too dense and binds too easily and can wear excessively. I find an OEM style rubber bushing works best in this application. Or go to aftermarket control arms with spherical joints. But if you want to keep it simple, stay with the rubber.
